With the TDA 7000 you can build an FM radio with a minimum of components; most of them so easy to manage...like the ceramic capacitors that do not require polarization...and only two resistors. The components you will employ will be of small dimensions and low cost. Even the integrated circuit itself, the TDA 7000, is not of great cost.
Build Accurate LC Meter and start making your own coils and inductors. This LC Meter allows to measure incredibly small inductances making it perfect tool for making all types of RF coils. LC Meter can measure inductances starting from 10nH - 1000nH, 1uH - 1000uH, 1mH - 100mH and capacitances from 0.1pF up to 900nF. The circuit includes an auto ranging and reset function to make sure the readings are as accurate as possible ... [more]
